Hope of Israel

Hope of Israel, Zion's army,
Children of the promised day,
See, the Chieftain signals onward,
And the battle's in array!

Hope of Israel, rise in might
With the sword of truth and right;
Sound the war-cry, "Watch and pray!"
Vanquish ev'ry foe today.

December 16, 2014

I've learned some really cool things lately! there is so much you can learn by deciphering the scriptures and applying them to ourselves! one of the scriptures that ive really liked is quite simple actually. it is in Phillipians chapter 4:13 and it says

 "i can do all things through christ which strengtheneth me"

This was up on the wall in the relief society room in the church. and the word "WHICH" is what stood out to me this time when i read it. when i first read that verse i thought of it as if it said "I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me" and thats how i read it and understood it! because we all know that Christ strengthens us and through him we can do all things, but then why was it written with the word "WHICH" and not Whom or who?....
lately i have researching and studying the topic of "how do i increase my faith??" ive been asking that to myself a lot lately, because you can never have to much!! :) From this scripture, i was able to learn a lot about it even if it doesnt say "Faith" specifically. 

"i can do all things through christ                                          Which strengthens me"

What happens when we do that??
To me, having that knowledge that god is our loving heavenly father and he and Jesus Christ love us more than we can ever imagine, and knowing the will help us with anything?? THAT is what strengthens me having that knowledge, and not only having that knowledge? but acting on it!! :) trying our faith, putting our faith in Christ, and testing it and having it confirmed to us that we have put our faith in the right thing :) this is when our faith grows, and we build a testimony, and continue on our way to be truly and completely converted to the lord :) acting on our faith builds our faith. which means if we are acting on our faith? it should always be continually growing :)  

I love all of you guys!! :) have a fantastic week and a merry christmas!! :)
